Clockwork Phoenix 5

An anthology of stories edited by

2016 Locus Recommended Reading List, Best Anthology

Contains "Sabbath Wine" by Barbara Krasnoff, 2016 Nebula Award finalist for Best Short Story

"Allen's strange and lovely fifth genre-melding fantasy anthology selects 20 new short stories of unusual variety, texture, compassion, and perception. . . . All the stories afford thought-provoking glimpses into alternative realities that linger, sparking unconventional thoughts, long after they are first encountered."
- Publishers Weekly, starred review

The Clockwork Phoenix anthologies offer homes to "well-written stories occupying multiple subgenres, usually in the same story, often ambiguously," as Locus Magazine once put it.

In April, the ground-breaking, boundary-pushing, award-nominated series returns for a fifth incarnation, triumphantly risen from the ashes after another successful Kickstarter campaign. This is the largest installment yet, holding twenty new tales of beauty and strangeness.

With original fiction from Jason Kimble, Rachael K. Jones, Patricia Russo, Marie Brennan, Benjanun Sriduangkaew, Rob Cameron, A. C. Wise, Gray Rinehart, Sam Fleming, Sunil Patel, C. S. E. Cooney and Carlos Hernandez, Holly Heisey, Barbara Krasnoff, Sonya Taaffe, Alex Dally MacFarlane, Shveta Thakrar, Cassandra Khaw, Keffy R. M. Kehrli, Rich Larson, and Beth Cato. Cover art by Paula Arwen Owen.
